Re: experience with BGP on Extreme's Alpine

I have had very good experiences using Extremes BGP
implementation on The SummitI and Black Diamond L3
switches. I ran EBGP and IBGP (no sync) with full
internet routing tables, interoperating with Cisco and
Riverstone equipment and had no major problems.
Extremes BGP implementation is identical to Cisco's in
most respects. It provides good support for BGP
reflection and uses the same route selection criteria.
My only complaint is Extremes implementation Cisco's
"Administrative Distance", known as "Route Priority"
there is little documentation (both inside and outside
of Extreme) on how the values are determined and how
they can be adjusted.

I know ExtremeNetwork's high position in L2, but
don't have any idea how they
perform on L3. Now an Alpine3804 might the right
solution for a customer as
he needs a loadbalancer, switch and router which
also should do BGP.
Any experience and hints welcome!
